We know that Taraji P. Henson loves working with Tyler Perry. How much? When the filming of Perry’s new movie, Acrimony, didn’t look like it would be compatible with Henson’sEmpire shooting schedule, she went out of her way to make it work. (Click on the media bar below to hear Tyler Perry)
Tyler Perry’s Acrimony opens in theaters this Friday.
Tyler Perry is one of cinema’s most successful filmmakers, so placing his latest film Acrimony at the highest level is a big deal. The project reunites him withTaraji P. Henson, as he previously worked with the actress on I Can Do All Bad By Myselfand The Family That Preys.
“This story burned in me for a long time,” said Perry. “This is my favorite movie that I’ve ever done. This is my favorite, hands down, favorite (film) of all time. I wanted to explore what happens when people can’t let go – when they feel betrayed even if they weren’t betrayed. I wanted to explore that because I’ve seen people live that and not be able to let it go.”
Henson, who plays a woman who goes on a vengeful streak after she believes she has been wronged by her husband (Lyriq Bent), balanced making the movie with her work on Empire. Click on the media bar to hear Perry elaborate on why Henson is such a special actress.

Reilly) helps Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) navigate the perilous world wide web in search of a replacement to save Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush.
